Black and White #23



The top photo here was such a mediocre photo in color, but after playing with it in black and white and especially after cranking up the contrast, I really like it a lot. The clouds look unreal, as if I pasted them here from a different photo, but they weren't. The photo is the same except for converting to black and white and upping the contrast.

The bottom one is pretty mediocre too, but to me, the one sea gull up there in the upper center of the photo makes it much better.

I love the turbulence of the clouds in the top photo!

It looks like the bottom of the big booster rockets when they ignite.

Nice B&W. Very cool images here recently. I'm sure that Prowler would be fun to drive.
